A Warm Cozy Hat

So, I made this warm beanie on a number 3 round loom using the stockinette stitch.  In case you dont know what that is, its just a regular ewrap.  I ewrap for about 10 rows and then take the loops from the first row and place them over the corresponding pegs. Knit over and continue on as usual.  That creates the brim so your edges dont curl up.  At the end I use the basic gathering method and sew back and forth across the top to make it secure and Whala!  you’re done!  If you like you can make a pom pom to put on top.  If you wish to purchase this beanie rather than make it yourself, go here:  http://www.etsy.com/listing/96021702/warm-soft-cozy-beanie

And as always May your handwork be blessed and your feltwork be fulfilling!  Happy Creating!

Socks and Purses and Flowers Oh My!

Well I have just been a busy beaver and  these are just a few of the things that I have made.  The socks I loom knitted for my daughter using a pattern from the book “Loom Knitting Primer” by Isela Phelps.  The purse I loom knitted by using the stockinette stitch on 20 pegs until the piece measured approximately 18 inches. Then I crocheted the handle using a hdc (half double crochet).6 stitches and worked it until it was about 20 inches long.Since I used 100% wool yarn I felted it in the washer in hot water.  Then I layed it out to dry on a towel  The flowers I made using my very own Five Minute Flower Pattern, some acrylic yarn and a size G and H crochet hooks.  They are really easy.  Have fun!  I know I did! LOL

5 Minute Flower

Hook size G, worsted weight yarn.

Slip knot on hook and ch 2

Row 1:  10 sc in first ch, join with sl st.

Row 2:  ch 1 sc in same ch 1 space, 3 dc in next sc, *2 sc in next sc, 3 dc in next sc * repeat from * around.  Sl st to first ch, fasten off.  Leave a 10 inch tail to attach flower to whatever you fancy.

Find  contrasting button or other adornment to hot glue in the center.

So get out your looms and crochet needles and create some fun!  And as always May your hands work be blessed and your fiberwork fulfilling!  Happy Creating!
